Baby #2: The Moment I Told Adam He Would Be Becoming a Dad for The Second Time

I took a pregnancy test on November the 1st 2014 after experiencing a few symptoms which made me think I might just be expecting. On that day, I got a positive result telling me that we were expecting our second baby!

Adam was at work at the time and Ethan was napping. And so I decided to plan a special 'celebratory' meal at Adams favourite restaurant where I planned to tell him that our family would be growing.

I told him that we were going to celebrate the fact that he had just gone part time at work to focus more on growing his home business and when we got to the restaurant I gave him a card that said how proud I was of him and how much I love him.

On the bottom of the card I had stuck a folded up post-it-note. On it I had written.. "P.S. You're going to be a Dad again. :)"...

Here's how he reacted.. :)

How to sleep well

With so much of our thinking caught up in the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, it's easy to not give second thought to our sleeping patterns. And when you consider that according to the National Sleep Foundation we should spend approximately one third of our lives asleep, it's worth spending some time making sure that when you sleep, you do it well!

So here's a few pointers on how you can maximise you and your family's sleeping potential.

Five tips to make your blog better

The New Year is just a few weeks away, and naturally most of us will use this time of year for a little introspection. We'll ask ourselves what happened in the past year and what we can improve in 2015. This will involve setting new goals and steering ourselves away from the devil that is procrastination.

It should also be a time to think more about your blog. With just a few tweaks you can breathe new life into your blog and exponentially increase your reader numbers.

While you'll probably want to do your own brainstorming, here's a list of five things I've found have worked for my own blog this year..

It's Christmas for The Cats too!

Firstly, thank you all so much for the messages of congratulations regarding our baby news yesterday :) I always get so blown away by how lovely the people who read my blog and fellow bloggers are!

Secondly, it's just one week until Christmas day! How fast has December gone so far?! It's so crazy!

Today I am going to talk presents, but not of the human-variety, no, today it's all about the animal kingdom (or rather, our lovely pets). Because after all, it's christmas for them too right?!

A Special Announcement.. Christmas Came Early for Us! Baby #2

We have some news to share.. 

Ethan will be being promoted to his new role of Big Brother in June 2015. And we all cannot wait :)

How to Get Your Baby / Toddler Used to Going Swimming

I'm not a keen nor strong swimmer myself and I've talked about this a lot here on my blog. But I do like to push Ethan to do things that I may not necessarily feel confident enough to do myself, and swimming is one of those things - I never want any of my own nervousness or anxiety to hold him back. 

When we first begun swimming lessons, it's fair to say that we were as nervous as each other, but these days he's like a fish in water and I know that he genuinely looks so forward to Thursday mornings every single week. And quite honestly, that makes me a. very very happy and b. so very proud to see how well he is now doing.
